Closing plenary - CRVS2030

  1. 1. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 Harnessing the power February 27–28, 2018 CRVS systems for 2030 Global Agendas Exploiter la puissance 27 au 28 février 2018 Les systèmes d’ESEC pour réaliser l’agenda 2030
  2. 2. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 Reflecting on Innovation What we heard… • CRVS systems need to be designed to work for people (Human-Centred Design) • The disaggregation of data, by sex at the very least, is fundamental • We need to build a strong, clear business case to be able to explain how the benefits of investing in CRVS systems outweigh the costs (economic and otherwise) • Systems need to be developed that can operate in – and help respond to - conflicts and emergencies
  3. 3. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 Reflecting on Innovation What we heard… • Innovation is not about technology alone – it’s about identifying new ways of working to build or strengthen the fundamentals (approaches, partnerships, social inclusion) • Technological innovation is not about the technology in itself but in its application • This requires coordinating across sectors and partners to support priorities defined by countries themselves • We need to learn from – and share - successes which overcome context specific challenges
  4. 4. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 Key challenges What we heard… • The need for localised solutions, but that can benefit from regional and global learning and experience. How do we do this in practice? • How can service provision be enhanced to create demand for CRVS systems? (incentivization?) • In conflict and emergency settings, how can the systems of international agencies and partners be interoperable with existing national systems to avoid statelessness and other negative consequences • Recognizing the potential of integrated systems, how do we ensure data protection for populations?
  5. 5. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 Calls to Action What we heard… • Data protocols and privacy issues must be incorporated into legal frameworks • We need to move from the concept of awareness to a real participatory approach of partnering with communities and stakeholders to design systems (adopting a participatory and ‘behaviour change’ model) • We need to develop consistent global guidance on integrating CRVS and unique ID systems • We need to analyse what we collect and publish what we analyse • In order for CRVS systems to work for all, we need to move from analysing to taking action on addressing gender inequities
  6. 6. #CRVS2030 #ESEC2030 What did you hear? What are your key takeaways? What are you going to do differently after this conference?
